The Guiding Light of Imperial Phoenix Terra is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Imperial Phoenix Septeu with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 20.088 billion Imperial Phoenix Terrans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Terra Prime. The average income tax rate is 90.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Imperial Phoenix Terran economy, worth a remarkable 3,291 trillion credits a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 163,832 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Criminal rehabilitation takes place in re-education centers, trust-fund babies line up for places in community college, nobody is allowed to mention what religion terrorists follow, and it's best to decline if Imperial Phoenix Septeu offers to buy a round of drinks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Imperial Phoenix Terra's national animal is the phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is three major religions and one holy city.

Imperial Phoenix Terra is ranked 3,215th in the world and 87th in The East Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 94.7 on the Human Development Index.
